Weekend Shopping: Obsessions & Impulses

September 27, 2020 by Lila Delilah
DSW continues to drop assorted past season Gucci shoes for 40% to 60% off. If you’ve been following along, you’ll notice that a new selection and restocks happen every morning. You might have also noticed that prices have inched up. When we first reported about the sale Jordaan loafers were $349 and now they are priced at $499. 
To sweeten the deal, DSW just started offering a promo code that will afford you an extra 5% off the entire Gucci selection. Just register your email address as an insider to engage the additional savings at checkout. 

As I scrolled through Vogue.com looking for inspiring fashion week pictures, I started to wonder; Can fashion week really exist if there aren’t any selfies? Beyond Corona, this year was just too heavy to endure the look-at-me-sitting-front-row brag. Could anyone really stomach the ‘I think you’re sitting in my seat’ or the ‘I don’t see your name on the list‘ confrontation?

As much as I love fashion and fashion shows, I must say, good riddance! I’m very happy to not know what Bella Hadid ate backstage or Nikki McGuire’s fashion week survival tips. It was never very interesting and this year proves how little it’s always mattered.
The online venue was a disaster for most designers looking to attract eyeballs and create buzz. As I predicted, however, the most thoughtful and creative minds in fashion emerged as delicate leaders.  The debut of the Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons duo collection might not have been earth-shattering but I did love that they took to the stage for a public conversation.
The most creative fashion week presentation was by Jeremy Scott for Moschino. The designer staged a full puppet show that was filled with imagination. The concept celebrated the whimsy that has always been part of the Moschino DNA. Marionettes of famous models showcased 40 couture-level looks. The front row was also reenacted by scaled-down futures representing the likeness of fashion’s most known figures such as Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful.  
Let’s step off off the runway conveyor belt and move on to shopping sales.  Friday night, Nordstrom started a private designer markdown where reductions are up to 70% off. You must use this link to view the discounts. Some of the highlights include Roger Vivier shoes with a classic buckle for $262 from $875 and here is a Prada floral print pump for $225 from $750. Sizes are limited for all styles. 
Moda Operandi started another round of markdowns. This Brandon Maxwell dress worn by Jill Biden at to the DNC is reduced to $658 from $1200, Roxanne Assouline bracelets are $72 from $240,  and a Prada scarf is $160 from $400. 
Macy’s is hosting a beauty promotion with discounts of 15% off.  Dior beauty and  Gucci fragrances are included. It might be worth checking out if you are starting to scoop at the bottom of your favorite moisturizer. 
Looking back on the week, Net-A-Porter started an early Fall shoe promotion, where many styles are discounted 15% off with the code SHOPSTYLE15. Some of the most tempting purchases include the great assortment of Golden Goose sneakers I also love these Fendi boots that come to $892 from $1050, Nicholas Kirkwood boots with a pearl heel are $833 from $980. You can click here to see what brands are excluded and to see my other finds. 
The Italian boutique, Tessabit is hosting a 30% off sale that is only open to Mad-Spy readers can access the sale selection early through this link with the code: S30MADISONSome of the highlights include a wide selection of options from Fendi, Balenciaga, Balmain and YSL, and more. This Balenciaga logo all-over sweater is $833 from $1190 and a Balmain tee for $226 from nearly $400 in the US. Tap here to see more
Saks Off 5th started a friends and family sale. Many items on the site are an additional 25% off with the code FRIENDS. A Nicole Benisi puffer that’s lined with shearling for about $1300 from $2900 and an Off-White puffer is $630 from $1890. Click over this way to see more of what we dug up on the site.  
This week, I also had so much fun working with Intermix to style the ultimate Fall essential pair of high-waisted leather pants.  Check out how I incorporated the pants into a half-dozen outfits that are neither basic nor boring. 
That’s it for now folks…Weekend Shopping will be off until October 17. See ya then!
